Artist 'odobo' creates stunning celebrity artworks using speeches given by each pop culture figure. The artist uses an uncommon technique that allows the words to become an image, or an image to become the words. The delicate process reveals an image of the celebrity, which can vaguely, but distinctly be seen among the carefully lined words.
Each image uses a distinct color such as a yellow or blue and allows the entire poster to look as though it is fully saturated in that color. The artist selects quotes from iconic people including Ellen Degeneres, Lebron James and Steve Jobs.
This project is simply titled 'Words from Pictures' and allows the artist to pay tribute to powerful people that have changed and shaped society for the better. Artist odobo is careful to select meaningful quotes, which best represent each of the subjects in his celebrity artworks.
